What do you desire? What do you need?
“When the sun rises, I go to work.
When the sun goes down, I take my rest,
I dig the well from which I drink,
I farm the soil which yields my food,
I share creation, Kings can do no more.” — Chinese proverb
Is this possible for us? Of course. How do we get there from the complexities and pressures of our current lifestyles?
Perhaps it’s a matter of becoming aware of what we truly have, rather than allowing our egos to focus on what we don’t have. And if we look closely, we may find that our ego needs are in fact just desires.
Today, when you become aware of wanting something, stop and be aware of your thoughts and feelings. What part of you is feeling impoverished? What do you perceive is missing from your life?
Is it a need? What’s the essence behind what you seek? How can you experience that quality now?
“To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars, and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony.” — William Henry Channing
